The least developed countries are not responsible for global climate change, yet will suffer most from its impact. And the poorest people in these countries are the most vulnerable. The presentation will outline the challenges they face as they confront a changing climate. It will also outline opportunities for building climate resilience into country growth and poverty alleviation strategies. Case studies will draw from examples in the water, energy, agriculture, and urban sectors
